Outdoor Church Service and Parish Picnic – While there will be an 8:00 a.m. service at St. Paul's, there will be no 10:00 a.m. service on May 20, UVa's Graduation Sunday. Instead, join us at McIntire Park (shelter #1) from 11:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m., for an outdoor church service followed by a parish picnic. Fried chicken and drinks are provided; other main dishes, sides, and desserts are potluck. Please bring a dish to share, your own plates/cups/utensils (to be kind to the environment), chairs if you would like to have them, and kites. There will be games and a piñata for the kids! Mark your calendars and join us for this fun family event.

Ministry Beyond Our Walls (MBOW) : Calling Bingo Callers! - Members of St. Paul's have been helping with monthly bingo games at Midway Manor (low income senior housing near downtown) for some time, and they are in need of a new caller. If you can spare 2 hours one day a month, we'd love to hear from you! Please contact Betty Kerner (202-0616) or John Frazee (242-0103) for more information.
Reel Theology: Summer films and theological reflections - Again this summer we are planning to show a series of films that work well as a basis for a theological reflection in June and July. Come join us on Wednesday nights beginning June 13. Since we don't have Community Night during the summer, eat before you come, or brown bag it - we'll provide popcorn. The movies will start promptly at 7; the discussion will follow, after a short break. If you want to come just for the movie, that's OK too. We also have one movie for kids of all ages: "Up".
Here is this summer's lineup:
June 13 - Little Miss Sunshine (2006) (101 min)
June 20 - Priest (1994) (105 min)
June 27 - Lilies of the Field (1963) (94 min)
